Napili Beach, Lahaina

4.8
#2 of 51 in Beaches in Maui
Beach · Nature / Park
Known as the "hidden gem" of Maui, Napili Beach offers swimming, snorkeling, and a possibility of encountering sea turtles. It is a rare beach on the island where there are no sharp coral reefs on the shoreline. The ocean bottom is soft and sandy, and rather steep, which makes it suitable for surfing, given that the weather permits. Showers and toilets are available, and there is a general store several minutes away. You will find food places in the area too. Shade is not common, so bring a sun umbrella. Put Napili Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lahaina sightseeing planner.
